I would appreciate someone interpret for me what the terminal run means. I've edited it for brevity.
- I first ran "$ sudo fdisk -l ". Then I attempted to make a directory.
- Then I attempted to make a mount point " $ sudo mkdir /media/USB ", which I tried previously, also, which might explain "File exists."
- The I attempted to mount the USB drive, following a cookbook at http://sourcedigit.com/14779-mount-unmount-usb-pen-drive-ubuntu-terminal/ . The result said it was already mounted or busy. so...
- I attempted to unmount it, if that were the problem "$ sudo umount /dev/sdd "
- Then I repeated the make directory and mount commands. It again told me it was already mounted or busy.
- I then finished by attempting to leave it in a unmounted state.
gparted then gave me me a dropdown box: /dev/sdd (7.5 GiB) The green box portion above the partitions says " /dev/sdd2 7.5 GiB " The partition portion of gparted has three lines. The first is: "/dev/sdd1 (exclamation point) File system (black square) unknown Size 31.50 KiB The second is: unallocated , File System grey square Size 1.97 KiB The final line is: /dev/sdd2 key symbol File system (green square) fat32 Mount Point /media//1D7E-DAFB Size 7.5 GiB Used 14.99 MiB Unused 7.48 GiB
Am I in error attempting to mount /dev/sdd ? Should it be one of the partitions?
